Animal Sanctuary for Pets of Cancer Patients

November 28, 2011 at 6:18 pm Leave a comment

If you are a patient with end stage cancer and are looking for pet care and/or adoptions for your beloved pet, a cancer center support group called Hope is Alive, has developed an Animal Sanctuary for their patients for just such a need. They provide free foster care and adoptive homes for pets of their patients.

 If you would like to start an Animal Sanctuary in your area, Hope is Alive has offered to share how they started their program which is called The Kathy Wolford Animal Sanctuary. The sanctuary is named after a patient that died and had no one to care for her beloved dog. She had a friend that stepped forward to care for her dog. The friend had a kennel run and donated 4 kennel runs which birthed the Kathy Wolford Animal Sanctuary.

For more information, please contact Patricia McCullough, LSW, social worker for the Cancer Center and Clearfield Hospital at (814) 768-2830. McCullough said she’d eventually like to expand the sanctuary to include pets of Clearfield Hospital patients and home health care patients.
